Mainline Event Planners was happy to decorate for last months Society of Wedding Planners meeting that took place on April 5th at Duportail House in Chesterbrook. We decided this was a fun casual look that fit the house… perfectly! We pulled our collection of lampshades, put out tons of candles and packed tulips in our mixed glassware.
I took Nicolle a new intern with me to set up Duportail just before the event. We unloaded and she had her doubts… black, white, silver, colorful bunches of tulips, barney purple linens, bling, feathers… so much going on! Much to her surprise once it was all setup she LOVED it! This look is exactly what I have recently talked about on KYW radio… “We say no matchy matchy ladies! From bridesmaids dresses, shoes to boutonnieres to centerpieces and rental lounge furniture 2012 weddings will have less symmetry than before. Most of the time, all of these things will still be unified by some type of central theme or mood to keep it polished and stylish!”
Polished and stylish is how I would describe these 5 tables!
I asked each of the planners to use one word to describe this look and here is what the gals said…
My favorite number is 5 – It has been since I was a kid. When laying out a plan for DuPortail I chose a 5 table design mixing the lampshades and accenting them with a variety of candles and tulips – which are a few of my other favorite things!
Each table has it’s own little story…
This shade is one of my favorites because it is the inspiration behind Kassie’s wedding! I love the pattern, the cleanness of the black and white, the mix of candles with a pop of color in the spring tulips! Perfect for the purple linen with just a little bling!!!
